Property condition


  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The decor in the lobby and inside of the hotel was really beautiful and artistic. The food was not good at all, and they run out of items during breakfast, so it was more of a first come first served.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Luxurious and comfy rooms. A bit far from the seaside.

Old property with poor service from staff. Cleanliness is good but the restaurant requires a huge overhaul

  • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

Reception personnel were not fluent in customer service. Gave us a double bed room while our reservation is for 1 king size bed. Suggest for us to join the beds to make as one bed which was not acceptable. After complaining, then change the room. Air con filters are not well maintained and the bathroom fixtures are old. Water seepage out from the shower cubicle to the bathroom as door is old. Restaurant staff however are very friendly and nice. Very hardworking especially the chef checking that customers are properly served. Housekeeping staff were very efficient too.
